Eindhoven Design Academy Graduate Joscha Weiand [1] is the brains behind Hangout, a neat semi-permanent shelter that incorporates a practical tent with creature comforts. The cozy space was designed to help support the masses of tourists that flood into Eindhoven [2] for festivals hosted in the city. The humble space is constructed from a simple tarpaulin stretched between two wooden facades, yet still manages to incorporate a door, a window, and a useful ladder within the structure, making it feel all the more like home.

The ladder takes you up to a net which hangs across the entire design to double as either a hammock or a storage area. On the other side of the ‘house’ a cute window hosts a built-in table that tucks away or can extend outside. The cool design hasn’t had its official launch yet—it will be exhibited at Dutch Design Week [3] from October 20 through 28.
